Home for Life Featured in LENS Magazine! photojournalist portraits of HFL sanctuary animals featuredThis fall, through a longtime supporter, we had the pleasure of meeting photographer Mark Edward Harris, who is based in Los Angeles, CA. Mark Edward Harris is an internationally renown photojournalist. On a recent media tour our supporter told him about Home For Life® and he wanted to visit. He is very interested in animal issues, and his book " People of the Forest", about orangutans, is not to be missed.

Excerpt from Mark Harris article
Excerpt from article above: "The inhumanity that brought many of the 235 cats and dogs to the sanctuary is heartbreaking. Still, the humanity of Executive Director Lisa LaVerdiere, who founded HFL in 1997, the two dozen staff members that care for the animals, the people that initally rescued the animals, and all the donors that support the facility does offer a glimmer of hope."

Don't miss his website where his portfolio of photos of the Home for Life Animals was just published! His website is a visual feast, with photos from his shoots from around the world and now his visit to Home for Life is included in his online portfolio, "Rescues of the Last Resort".
